Glee actress Naya Rivera lands the cover of Latina magazine’s “Hollywood Hot List” issue for the month of October. The 26-year-old bombshell opens up about her relationship with G.O.O.D Music rapper, Big Sean. She also dishes about the scope of her blossoming career–from her humble beginnings as a toddler breaking into the entertainment industry, landing the ground-breaking role of Santana Lopez on Glee to her now prepping for the debut of her first solo album.
On having a relationship with Big Sean–whom she met on Twitter–that is under the scope of the media: “We know so many who are in the public eye dating somebody, and they’re going in through back entrances and won’t make eye contact with each other. That’s just not us.”
On becoming comfortable with her mixed-race heritage: “It used to hold me back when I was younger. Casting directors didn’t understand what I was. I wasn’t black enough, or Latina enough–I kid of fell through the cracks.”
We are blown away by how gorgeous Naya looks on the cover and can’t wait for the issue to release on September 10. To hold you over until then, peep the behind-the-scenes video of Naya’s cover shoot below!
